Modern hair restoration surgery

      Hair loss resulting from disease, scarring, and, in particular, androgenetic alopecia, has troubled members of the human race since the dawn of history. A prescription for restoring hair is included in the Ebers papyrus of ancient Egypt, which has been dated at 1800 B.C.
